So what does Holiday Spice Cocktails mean? Well, cinnamon of course! And nutmeg, clove, allspice, and for the purpose of rounding out this round-up also some apple and coffee. Here are some spiced and flavorful cocktails to throw today. By the day what day is it? Today? Why, it’s Christmas Day of course!
Though in the photo these drinks look delicate and dainty, the mix is bourbon, dark beer, maple syrup, a dusting of nutmeg and garnished with a dried chili! Syrupy sweet and filling. From FoodNetwork.com.
This drink comes from the beautiful food blog Love & Lemons. A pretty little beverage with apple juice, vodka, star anise and cinnamon. By the way how do you pronounce anise? My mom and I had this debate recently: she says AN-ihss, and I thought it was an-EEZ. Hmmm.
The flavor blend in this drink looks so intriguing: ginger liqueur, Tuaca vanilla-citrus liqueur, rum and crushed gingersnaps for the rim. Smooth but with a bite! from MyRecipes.com.
This is a Bobby Flay recipe, and it sounds so good I just had to include it. If you had your hot coffee this morning, this Espresso Soda can be your afternoon pick-me-up. Coffee liqueur mixed with club soda, vodka and crushed espresso beans. From FoodNetwork.com.
The punch is tequila, plus apple cider, cinnamon simple syrup, and slices of Serrano peppers!
And after the spicy Cinnamon Twist comes a laid-back Mulled White Wine from Rachel Ray. The warmed wine is infused with cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. Sink back into the couch and say, “Ahhhh.” From RachelRayMag.com.
Here are all the Holiday Cocktail Round-ups:
Have a Very Merry Christmas!
